Korean Plastic Surgery before and after trends: See what I have found from my study
Introduction to South Korean Plastic Surgery:
South Korean people consider beauty to be achievable like they believe anything on earth can be achievable by hard work(you know they are pretty hard working nation). I am not sure if it is due to the animation series, South Korean ladies are thinking to be more western in beautification, amazing is not just in turn out, it’s in reshaping their faces!
Yes, you got it, I am talking about South Korean plastic surgery trend!
“So you can get into what you dream!”- This is what Korean women, from teenagers to elders are believing now. They are so much conscious about their rounded face, curvy jaw lines.
Plastic and cosmetic surgeries are the go of the day in South Korea, the country with highest plastic surgery. Some sources estimates that almost between one fifth to one third women and BBC states that just in Seoul, more than fifty percent women undergo knives of the cosmetic/plastic surgeon at their twenties for meeting the need of “If this portion of my face would be like this, I would be looking prettier!”.
To get a rough idea about current situation in South Korea about the necessity of Cosmetic surgeries look at the picture on the right where some young ladies passing by some Plastic and cosmetic surgery clinic ads in a subway station in Seoul.
Korea Rockets the Census as Girls wants to get a surgery as their high school graduation gift.
Korean girls’ plastic surgery may be the most common scenario that everyone has to think natural. Starting college after high school, every girl think about starting a new look to steal the show in college, the new chapter of their lives. “If you start your college with your ordinary or typical look and realize after a couple of year, it’s too late for you to impress the man you like or the group you are into because already your look is established and plastic surgery can’t change the first impression then!” says Min-Ji, a female student of a university in Seoul. “When my father asked what’s my wish after completing my high school, I asked to get me a surgery for my lips, tapering my jaws and double eyelid surgery.” she added, “And surprising is, my boy friend fell for my lips!” By this time you must have understood the situation in South Korea about the demand of cosmetic surgeries.
So this is one of the reason why everyone wants it while they pass out high schools. South Korea has thus replaced Brazil in the number of plastic surgery rate pushing Brazil at two and USA at the six!
Korean celebrity plastic surgery, Where May be the Real Fact
I am not sure, may be Korean actresses pioneered today’s plastic surgery rank topping. Let me show you just one simple example, don’t consider it irrelevant; after Jennifer Lopez got the breakthrough in the US music, plastic surgeon got highest requirement from girls for J.LO’s face in that time out of all celebs.
There has been a huge boom in the Korean movie industry, so with its gestures and postures. Why not? May be Korean actresses considered to become the exception; and you know exception, if it’s balanced always beautiful. See some samples of Korean actress plastic surgery cases:
On the right side you will see the pictures of one of the most popular actress in South Korea, Lee Yoo Bi’s Before and after Plastic surgery pictures. Where it is obvious that she is looking so wonderful after Plastic or Cosmetic surgery. And before the plastic surgery she was just ordinary girl and may be that’s the reason for her to make the plastic surgery on her face and which lead her to be a popular actress in South Korea.
Another popular South Korean Model is Yoo In Na. She started her career as an apprentice Singer at the age of 16. She also
practicing dancing. But after working hard for 11 yrs, she became frustrated as she was not able to get any big turn around to his career to become a great celebrity in South Korea which is her cherished goal. Then she decided to make a change on her face and made a huge change in his face by making a plastic surgery to her nose. Then her big break came in 2009 with the popular daytime sitcom High Kick Through the Roof onMBC. And after that she didn’t need to look back and now she is one of the most popular actress in South Korea as well as in the globe.
So they may have thought of getting westernized, because that’s popular around the globe. You can see all European, Latin or North American models or celebrities in the fashion channels, though Asian models have potentials, but the formers got the spot light.
So naturally they would want the Korean men’s focus from Playboy to themselves or becoming a successful celebrity like western celebs. So, that triggered the tendency of undergoing knives of the surgeons for a Korean cosmetic surgery; remember this is only my assumption, i mean no offense to anyone. So, they did it
and like J.LO and many more other cases, ladies in Seoul and all over South Korea started swarming towards the surgeons! Not necessary is that they want the faces of the actresses for Korean star plastic surgery cases, but they have seen the change, acknowledged it and now adopting it!
Bitch Please! Men in Korea too!
Like I said earlier that South Koreans consider beauty to be achievable by operation like success is achievable by hard work, so don’t think just that only women are obsessed towards it, even men are also! Kang Jang-Seok from southern Seoul started his business “Man and Nature” in Gangnum, southern Seoul. He initially had only the hair transplant treatment for men only which was started in 2005. But when he had started a Korean plastic surgery clinic beside in a smaller span, he understood that it should had been a bigger in plan.
His clinic initially served men for surgery to have bigger eyes and longer nose, and just two years ago he had to shift his clinic in a four storied building! Another reason is South Korean men are considering to be more “Internationally” masculine in appearance. So their appearance need more focus points, right?
Can you see the Korean plastic surgery before and after? If modified beauty deserves better, why shouldn’t males too?
Well, one real creepy thing I know which must be shared with you before you undergo the surgeon’s knives. This is, which parts are they going to trim off and what will you feel if you see by those yourself just after surgery or may be after a long time?
Yes, these are those bones(Pictured on the right), trimmed off from people like you during surgery! The Korean plastic surgery clinic showcasing this in Gangnam has been fined.
Last week I have seen someone sharing a woman’s selfie with a large glass column containing bones. That is in a plastic surgery clinic displaying parts of mandibles and many other things those have been trimmed off from their clients or should I say patients like the other websites do. I just thought that what would happen if I see my own mandible trimmed offs? The clinic has been fined for displaying so. Yack, leave that matter, even then before surgery in a good surgery clinic, you will be briefed with a skull demonstration that which part of your bones are to be trimmed or resized.
This operation also may involve placement and rearranging of blood vessels around the facial bones.
How much that costs?
You see one third Seoul ladies have undergone the knives, so Korean plastic surgery cost is variable. If you go to a reknown clinic where foreigners are also coming, be sure the price is high enough. But if you are searching everywhere in locality, you can get cheaper. But be sure of the quality of service.
Here we will refer an updated list of Korean plastic surgery costs in 2015. This list was published by Korean Medical Hub on the beginning of 2015 and the list is being updated regularly. So, you will see changes on the prices from time to time.
This is tourism, so helps the country too along with individuals
Since Seoul has become world’s plastic surgery destination, people from China are rushing there regularly to get the best of the services for their hard earned investments. One Chinese woman while landing on Seoul told to CNN, “Yes we have got cosmetic surgery clinics in China but the reason for coming to South Korea is its highly experienced surgeons.”
Of course she is right, due to the high demand, it has become a great niche for over 1800 certified plastic surgeons in that country, and so with their training, experience and qualifications.
For visiting plastic surgery patients, there are several hotel clinics in South Korea. Serving the international patients an international level surgery and hotel accommodation, there has been a boom in this business as you know, people coming from abroad would like to have good environment and nurture after a surgery. Here patients are directly sent to their suits after they have undergone surgery. Even some hotels like Ritz Carlton Seoul have direct link with the renowned clinics.
JK plastic surgery clinic, one of the leading in Seoul states that of its total annual patients, 40 to 50 percent is made up with foreigners and of the foreigners, almost 70 percent are the Chinese people.
Joo Kwon, the founder of CEO of JK Plastic Surgery Center, was sharing his experience of plastic surgery in his early days. It was in the mid-2000s when South Korean plastic surgeon Joo Kwon noticed a trickle of Chinese women walking into his clinic, even though he hadn’t advertised overseas.
Anyway, think before you leap
Before undergoing the surgical knives, be sure the surgeon is well trained and certified as there are lot of clinics already there in South Korea and more are in the pipeline to enter business. You can see our post to ma
Secondly, how you are born, that’s the real you. There is no reason for bearing embarrassment in it. May be you are looking extraordinarily beautiful after a successful cosmetic surgery, but see the following picture of a family.
Forget about if this is a Korean or Chinese family, do you realize now that this not forever flashing? I am neither discouraging you nor offending anyone actually, just trying to say that this is the actual state of our mind.
So, when you want to decide for plastic surgery for yourself, be sure you are doing it by good surgeons and your family is accepting the change in your body.
